Hi All,

Just inherited a 1942 Izhevsk Mosin Nagant 1891/59 with a scrubbed receiver. Does anyone here know anything about them? The rifle looks beautiful and has some faint markings left on the sides of the receiver.

Scrubbed receiver or scrubbed barrel shank?

A sanitized 91/59 is a 7 out of 10 on the rarity scale.

This one is scrubbed where most would have arsenal marks and date codes.

Hope this helps a little. From what is know about them they are believed to be Bulgarian conversion.

I have a friend who keeps wanting to buy it from me since he knows I am saving up for an M1A. Definitely seems like a strange little carbine. Are these generally more accurate than an M44?

It was for me, but at the same time I always had trouble with the M44's bayonet distracting me.

That photo is not your receiver, that's your barrel, which is where most of your information comes from. Any numbers or marks beneath the wood? On the rear tang, under the front receiver lug, etc?

No markings on receiver, on the underside of the tang is a 42 with the Izhvesk markings

The 91/59's in general are fine shooters due to the fact that most have like new barrels and were reworked in top quality fashion.

Mine has the smoothest and crispest trigger of all my Russian Mosins. Others have made this claim as well. Since it was a cutdown barrel the crown is usually sharp. Plus they didn't see a lot of use.

A sanitized 91/59 is a 7 out of 10 on the rarity scale.

My guess on the sanitized version is that they smoothed out the ones with wartime rough machining. On mine you can still see the faint machining striations on the receiver.
Sanitized 91/59's are scarcer, most i have seen have low numbers.

Your avatar reminded me that 91/59's were supposedly issued to East German border guards


I just busted out the 91/59 last weekend, desert .... mmm fireballs

I put it in the stack of rifles that are not going anywhere, along side the Israeli K98 and Winchester 1917 I finished last night
